A cultural co-operation project of Nordrhein-Westfalia and The Netherlands
  The Netherlands will host a cultural exchange and co-operation project with Nordrhein-Westfalia during the months October and November of this year, entitled "Kunst NRW.NL". In the framework of this program a series of cultural and art projects in the field of new media will be realised. These projects have emerged from a unique co-operation between artists, institutions and cultural initiatives from both countries. The series of projects is co-ordinated by De Balie, Centre for Culture and Politics (Amsterdam), and the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, with V2_Organisation (Rotterdam) and Montevideo TBA (Amsterdam) as the most important partner organisations.
  This co-operation project underlines the close ties that exist between both countries, and stresses the great importance this co-operation already has today, and which it increasingly will have in the context of the further European integration in the future. Culturally as well as in the field of media and new media, both The Netherlands and Nordrhein-Westfalia in many ways take a leading role in Europe. Especially in these two countries attempts are made to establish a relationship between the new media development as such, and its social and cultural impact, that transcends its economic and technological significance. Both countries, moreover, have a rich cultural tradition and history, as well as a very lively and a highly diverse contemporary cultural live. It is foremost this diversity that informs the new media program.
